Choosing the right childcare for your child and your family is a big step and can be a little daunting. Hopefully in these pages you will find out more about who we are and how we offer excellent care and education to the children in our care.
Life in Oakley Nursery and Preschool is safe, fun, energetic, learning focused and yes sometimes very messy. Each day involves three full meals and two snacks and sleep time. As well as free play time, planned learning activities and plenty of outdoor play – all providing educational opportunities for your child.
We believe that every child is unique, naturally curious and eager to learn about the world around them and our experienced staff will support them to reach their full potential. Our learning through play approach supports your child’s learning and development whilst fostering their natural curiosity for knowledge and they have fun at the same time!
In addition to building a strong bond with your child it is also important that we build a strong bond with you, we call it “Working in Partnership with families”. This approach allows us to get to know your child quicker, build a greater understanding of their needs, tailor our care more effectively to their development and support your approach to childcare at home by matching it in the nursery.
This approach will also help you to be more involved with your child’s journey in the nursery and preschool. Some of the ways we do this is through daily handovers (at drop off and pick up) parent’s evenings, stay and play sessions, home stories, Parents Preschool Preparation presentations and through the Famly app.
